We’ve teamed up with Technogym® to bring you the SKILLROW™, the first indoor rowing machine capable of improving anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities in a single solution.

Set in a stunning Grade II listed church in central London. Come down, take a class, and become a part of the crew!

Industry Game Changer

Technogym teamed up with Olympic rowers Rossana Galtarossa who took home gold for Italy in 2000, two-time World Champion Lightweight Marcello Miani and eight-time gold medallist for Great Britain, Scott Durant.

Development of the SKILLROW began just over a year ago in close consultation with the three expert rowers, and researchers from Loughborough University in the UK, with the explicit aim to produce the best rowing machine in the world. We think they’ve achieved this – come try it for yourself.

Different Class

What makes us different


01. Do it right

Do it right. We grow up with running and cycling but we know that not many of us rowed. We’ve designed, tried and tested an easy way for you to pick up all the fundamentals.

02. Learn your numbers

Learn your numbers. Getting a proper understanding of what the numbers mean on the screen will make sure you always have a great workout and can keep track of your progress.

03. Fully Connected

Thanks to the SKILLROW™ App, users can enjoy a more motivating digital experience. It’s like having a virtual cox always close by.

04. Unique feel of rowing on the water

The resistance delivered by SKILLROW was designed to follow the natural curve of the stroke in the water. The handle velocity throughout the active phase of the stroke is closer to the oar velocity in boat rowing than traditional ergometers. It’s called AQUAFEEL.

05. Train for Power and Cardiovascular

Unlike other machines, our rower offers the ability to add a magnetic resistance which gives you the benefit of training not only for cardio but for power improvements.

01 \ 03 Cutting edge

Our technology

Using our specially designed apps, we can create personalised workouts remotely which are programmed into your machine with the simple touch of a button! Virtual races, coaches and biomechanical feedback all in clean graphics displays.

We understand that many rowers live and die by their standardised erg scores, so we’ve calibrated the machines to produce scores that are directly comparable to the Concept2.

02 \ 03 Teamwork

Pull as a Team

Our classes are designed around teamwork so that your stroke rate is the same as your ‘teammates’ but you can pull at a strength that’s right for you. This is a great motivator and really gets you to push yourself further than you would on your own.
